Judge Mcbryde is certainly NOT honorable! This man should not even be a judge as he clearly doesn't understand or doesn't care which I fully believe it's the latter what the duties of a judge are. This man has numerous complaints about being biased and even was sanctioned before. The case I witnessed the prosecution didn't have to make not 1 objection because McBryde was making them for them. He overuled any objection made by the defense sometimes before they could finish their objection. He did not allow the defense to ask any meaningful questions of any witness while the prosecution was given more than ample time to examine and cross-examine witnesses. Also McBryde denied the defendant being in the court room during his own trial nor did we ever see or hear from the defendant. He mumbles constantly and no one can understand nor hear him. Furthermore he appeared to not being paying attention at all any time the prosecution was speaking yet when it was the defenses turn the judge glared constantly at defense council. This man does wouldn't know justice if it hit him in the face. There is something wrong when prosecutors and defense attorneys are scared to have any of their cases heard by this monster! There is NO JUSTICE AT ALL IN THE NORTHERN DISTRICT COURT IN FORT WORTH ONLY RAILROADINGS HAPPEN IN THIS COURT! HOW CAN THERE BE JUSTICE IN A COURT THAT HAS A 100% CONVICTION RATING!

A bully and tyrant of the first order. Also, a hypocrite, being a Republican who supposedly does not believe in "judicial activism." If he had any real guts, he would resign from bench and run for Congress. Tried to re-write well-established law on EAJA fees in Social Security disability cases and basically called all Soc Sec lawyers who represent claimants in fed court crooks. In 5th cir. briefs, both parties repudiated McBryde's position. 5th has overturned one and other is pending, with both sides in agreement that McBryde is trying to gut the EAJA.

Received Final Judgment today Dismissing my case against a Creditor who relentlessly called my unlisted number for many months, many times a day regardless of the fact that I notified the creditor they were calling the wrong number, no one lived here by the name they were seeking and they were repeatedly asked to stop calling my unlisted number. In his court creditors can relentlessly call and harass you for someone else's debt! The creditor will not suffer any consequences. I was told there were laws against this type of harassment even for the owing debtor but in his court the innocent have no rights and suffer undeserved harassment of creditors for debts they don't own or owe. Unjust!!!

He's a spin doctor. Always pulls USPOs into chambers and influences how the PSR offense conduct and/or objections should be written in order to manipulate the guidelines. He transferred USPO Flynn to the Dallas office over a case that he eventually found to be "inappropriately written in a manner favoring the defendant."

I was a juror in his court. It was very refreshing to watch him keep the lawyers in line and not allow them to stroke their own egos. Way to go!

A horrible jurist, but, more importantly, a horrible man. Will not countenance legal arguments adverse to his "pre-ordained" opinion, dispite what the 5th Circuit or USSC may have said on the subject. However, in his defense, he is punctual.

Tyrant. Disciplined by the 5th Ckt. for being a small-minded bully. Smart, but lazy and evil.
